Johnny Depp joined the ranks of celebs pushing the boundaries with an apparent reference to killing President Trump during an appearance at an English music festival yesterday, asking the crowd: "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?".
Depp was at the festival Thursday to introduce a screening of his 2004 film, "The Libertine".
Actor Johnny Depp took the road that's becoming familiar for marginal celebrities desperate to garner headlines. "I'm not insinuating anything", he added, "by the way this will be in the press and it will be disgusting". "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?".
Depps comments were met with huge cheers from the mainly liberal crowd.
Depp's comments come after comedian Kathy Griffin was investigated by the Secret Service for the controversial anti-Trump photo she released featuring herself holding up a bloody decapitated head that resembled the president.
A White House official issued a statement reading, "President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it's sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead".

Last year, Depp played Trump in a almost hourlong spoof called, "Funny or Die Presents Donald Trump's The Art of the Deal: The Movie".
Trump supporters going into meltdown over Johnny Depp's assassination comments.
Griffin had been receiving very detailed death threats, and she had been advised to stay off her social media accounts, along with her personal website.
However, he said, it's "been a while, and maybe it's time". "I won't have a career after this". What she did caused her some of the projects she already signed up for such as the New Year's Eve gig with CNN.
Some of her comedy tour venues cancelled her stops out of protest, and she's been pulled from various lineups across the United States.
